AIA Huron Valley presents: THE BEST DESIGN!

October 23, 2008 06:00 PM
Ypsilanti
Corner Brewery

The Best Design! is an informal, rapid-fire design presentation with a variety of speakers from creative fields: architecture, graphic design, landscape architecture, painting, ceramics, metalwork, and beyond.

The format is simple: each speaker has 20 Power Point slides, and just 20 seconds per slide, to present an idea.

The presentation could be about anything, from a specific building to a critique of deconstructionist paintings. Our theme is "The Best Design!," which leaves the topic wide open, so we are looking forward to some creative liberties.

Speakers include Steven Mankouche, former TCAUP dean Bob Beckley, Beth Diamond, Nawal Motawi, Adriaan Van Velden, Chris Bidlack, Mary Thiefels, among others.

Afterward we hope people will mix and talk about design for awhile. There will be a cash bar, though food options are limited. A similar event in Detroit drew 200+ people so come early and enjoy! Free admission.
